THOSE SHOCKING SHAKING DAYS is a radical and uncompromising film essay about the (im)possibility of depicting the atrocities of war. Taking the Bosnian war (1992-1995) as a starting point, artist Selma Doborac confronts us with our position as both onlooker and image consumer in a way that's quite shocking indeed, although not quite in the way you might expect. Experiencing this work is as emotionally confronting as it is intellectually challenging.
After a break, we will show NUIT ET BROUILLARD (1956) by Alain Resnais, a short documentary made ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps in Auschwitz and Majdanec. The film exposes a radically different approach to the representation of evil, historically echoing the questions and ideas that manifest themselves in our feature film.
Presented in collaboration with my friends at INTOLERANT FILM COLLECTIVE.
